The health, safety and well-being of our guests and team remains our number one priority. We have reviewed all our procedures across each part of our business and are pleased to have received the “We’re Good To Go” – the official UK mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has processes in place to keep themselves and visitors safe. We will continue to review our approach based upon the Welsh Government guidelines and Public Health Wales.
“We shared our perfect wedding celebration with family and friends, and we’d love you to experience the magic of St Tewdrics on your wedding day” – Sara and Geraint Thomas OBE, owners of St Tewdrics House.
Approached by a tree-lined driveway St Tewdrics House offers beautiful grounds with stunning views over the Severn estuary making it the perfect setting for your wedding.
There are picturesque spots for those all-important photos too – the spectacular fountain, the pretty tree swing, their unique and stunning seasonal wildflower meadow plus they have their very own Ty Haf (pergola) set at the end of the sun terrace.
St Tewdrics House is owned and run by husband and wife team, Geraint Thomas OBE and Sara Thomas, along with Sara’s parents Eifion and Beth. The 19th Century Italianate Villa was transformed from a family home into a wedding venue after Geraint and Sara held their own wedding reception at St Tewdrics.
Geraint proposed to Sara in 2013 and, after the initial engagement celebrations, they set about looking for the perfect venue for their wedding reception. They looked at a number of wedding venues but struggled to find somewhere that offered everything they wanted.
“So many country houses that we looked at were vast and impersonal and, while beautiful, often had a traditional décor that didn’t fit with our style or image of what we wanted our wedding to be. We also felt that we were being tied into set food and drink packages that didn’t allow for our own personal ideas or requirements. We fell in love with St Tewdrics House as soon as we saw it. Its romantic, Italian renaissance style was just what we were looking for and the classic, yet modern interiors fitted perfectly with the look and feel we were trying to achieve.”
Sara and Geraint held their wedding reception at St Tewdrics House in October 2015, following a church ceremony. St Tewdrics House was the perfect setting for what was the most amazing day. So many of their friends and family commented about how beautiful the venue was and they then began to think that they couldn’t be the only ones that were looking for this.
So that’s when the idea first came to mind to use St Tewdrics House as a wedding venue for others to enjoy. They want every couple to enjoy St Tewdrics House and its romantic setting as much as they did and use it as their home-from-home on what is the most special day of their lives.
The House can be hired exclusively for the day of your wedding or you can extend your stay for two or three nights, allowing you to relax and make the most of your wedding celebrations. They always listen to the wishes of their couples and their team aim to be as flexible and as helpful as they can be to ensure you have the perfect day.
Their luxury boutique accommodation in both the main house and the Lodge combined with their stunning location and total exclusivity for your day makes St Tewdrics the ideal choice.
